Explore the majestic La Plata Mountains and Canyon near Durango CO at one of the most scenic and beautiful times of day as dusk approaches and the mountains come alive. Our Jeep trail tour travels through La Plata Canyon. We get to around 10,000 feet above sea level and stop to take in the views. This is a great adventure for the entire family. All ages are welcome on this trip however car seats are not provided. NOTE: This tour does not go up to the the top of Kennebec Pass. What to Expect You will board into our "Open-Air" vehicle (however we reserve the right to take a Jeep Wrangler or SUV as needed). We will drive on the highway approximately 20-25 minutes to the mouth of the canyon and from there we will start our tour into the canyon. It can get windy so if you get cold easily please bring a jacket or ask for one, we carry extra jackets and blankets but you may need to ask. Dress in Layers, a jacket would be helpful.
Leaving right before sunset, our twilight our offer a shorter trip and typically smaller groups for the more economical adventurer. The trip follows the same path as our 4-hour Kennebec Pass tour, passing the historic La Plata City ghost town and beautiful rivers and waterfalls. The trip then turns around halfway up and heads back towards Durango. We are in the valley and will not see a sunset however you will see amazing views of the twilight sky during the sun setting. This is very popular trip to do after the train ride or a Mesa Verde tour. If you would like more time and get to higher in the canyon then please select our 4 hour tour.
